Opposition Leader Jitendra Chaudhury accuses BJP of corruption and misuse of power using CBI, ED, and Income Tax


 By TC News Desk

Agartala, 9th April 2024:   In a scathing attack on the ruling BJP, CPIM state secretary and Leader of Opposition Jitendra Chaudhury on Tuesday accused the government of employing coercive tactics through agencies like the CBI, ED, and Income Tax, dubbing them the ” Thangare Bahini” to extract money from individuals. Chaudhury made these remarks during an election meeting held in front of Badarghat Sarvadharma Mission, endorsing INDI Alliance candidate Asish Kumar Saha for the West Tripura Lok Sabha seat.

Chaudhury criticized the BJP’s anti-corruption stance, highlighting the controversial electoral bonds as a prime example of corruption within the party. He alleged that BJP President JP Nadda, despite being implicated, had evaded arrest, while opposition figures like Arvind Kejwal faced unjust incarceration. He labeled the BJP leadership as the “Thangare Bahini,” asserting their misuse of power for personal gain.

Drawing attention to the issuance of electoral bonds amounting to Rs 16,000 crore, Chaudhury asserted that this money belonged to the people and not the BJP government. He accused the BJP of diverting public funds to serve corporate interests, citing extravagant expenses on helicopter rides and advertisements at the expense of the common citizen. Additionally, Chaudhury raised concerns about the rising prices of essential goods and medicines, alleging their degradation and endangerment of public health.

During the meeting, Chaudhury highlighted the BJP’s failure to fulfill pre-election promises, emphasizing the need for accountability and review of their governance. He condemned the BJP’s track record of neglecting promises made to the electorate, particularly regarding the retrieval of black money from abroad. Instead, Chaudhury criticized the government’s decision to demonetize Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes, adversely affecting the livelihoods of working-class citizens.

In addition to Chaudhury, other speakers at the meeting included INDI Alliance candidate Asish Kumar Saha, local Congress, and CPIM leaders. The gathering aimed to galvanize support for the opposition alliance, highlighting concerns over corruption and governance under the BJP regime.
